Abstract: The Denison Dam and Lake Texoma Reservoir project (referred to as Lake Texoma) is a multipurpose water resources project constructed and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Tulsa District. The lake and associated federal lands are located in Bryan, Marshall, Johnston, and Love Counties, Oklahoma (OK) and Grayson and Cooke Counties, Texas (TX). Denison Dam is situated at river mile 725.9 on the Red River, approximately 5 miles northwest of Denison, TX. It is aligned in a north-south direction and extends for a distance of approximately 2.8 miles through both Grayson County, TX and Bryan County, OK. The dam and associated infrastructure, as well as all lands acquired for the Lake Texoma project, are federally-owned and administered by the USACE. This Master Plan is intended to serve as a comprehensive land and recreation management guide with an effective life of approximately 25 years. The focus of the Plan is to guide the stewardship of natural and cultural resources, and make provision for outdoor recreation facilities and opportunities on federal land associated with Lake Texoma. The Plan does not address the flood risk management, hydroelectric power, or water supply purposes of Lake Texoma (see the USACE Water Control Manual for Lake Texoma for a description of these project purposes). The original Master Plan for Lake Texoma was approved in 1960 and was last updated in 1978 as Design Memorandum No. 3C to guide future land and water development. In 1999, USACE discontinued use of the Design Memorandum system as a means of organizing the many phases of civil works projects, therefore, the term “Design Memorandum” is not used in the title of this Master Plan revision.
